Subject: Very interested in duaneherenow offer
Fascinating show.

It would certainly benefit from what duaneherenow has to offer.

Plus I am almost certain the MC introduces the second cut as "Wail, Frail." This is also how it is listed in the Taper's Compendium.

Subject: anyone interested in a cleaned up version of Finnegan's Awake?
It is of great historical interest to hear
these recordings, especially the two songs
composed by Phil. Unfortunately, they are
badly chipmunked - i.e. played back at a
faster speed than they were recorded at.
The announcer sounds like he's been huffin'
helium.

There is also some pretty bad flanging
going on because the left and right channels
are slightly out of synch.

I have done a little cleanup on Phil's two originals in Pro Tools, and I am happy with
the results - especially on Finnegan's Awake.
Slowed it down to what I'm guessing is the
right key - B-flat, beloved key of trumpeters
everywhere - and resynched the channels to eliminate or reduce the flanging.

Wail Frail (as I saw the title somewhere else)
also sounds somewhat better than the version
here, but the improvement isn't as big as on
Finnegan's Awake which is now quite listenable,
particularly for a 1959 recording with an
unknown number of analog generations.

I'd be happy to make these available here or elsewhere, if there is interest.

Subject: The First Phil Tape
I do believe this is the infamous first tape in the GD Vault.
Very cool of the Archivhe to put it up.
Thanks Archive! And thanks Phil for allowing them to start archiving your shows!

Phil plays trumpet in this tape, not Bass. he didn't start on bass until the GD days becasue that was the instrument they needed.
